Marrakech, Morocco

Route des Jardins de la Palmeraie

This popular resort area to the north of Marrakech has some of the finest road running in the city. If you’re staying in one of the hotels here, it’s an ideal addition to the grounds right outside your door, and car traffic in this area is relatively light. In addition to extravagant resorts, runners will find an oasis of desert palm trees where camels lounge in the shade. To create a loop, a great addition is the road along the east bank of the Oued Issil. The loop in full is about 10 km.
